A TRAILER firm is restoring a 30-year-old horsebox to its former glory in order to wheel it onto the set of a new television series.

Ifor Williams Trailers will carry out the restoration for the producers of the Prosiect Pum Mil to provide a mobile office and commentary position.

Its latest show, in the close-knit community of Ysbyty Ifan, Conwy is a spin-off from the popular S4C programme Priodas Pum Mil in which presenters Emma Walford and Trystan Ellis-Morris organise dream weddings for happy couples across Wales – all within a budget of £5,000.

At the heart of the episode being filmed in Ysbyty Ifan is the horsebox which originally rolled off the production line in 1987 when S4C was just five years old.

The trailer was donated to the project by farmer and mother-of-four Jane Roberts, who bought it second hand in 1999.

“We are very much a community-based company and we were pleased to have an opportunity to help this wonderful project in Ysbyty Ifan which will benefit the local community for many years to come," said Ifor Williams Trailers projects coordinator Lois Wynne.

Emma Walford, from Abergele, said the horsebox has “utterly transformed” the project.

“We’re totally dependent upon the community and the generosity of the community and local businesses to realise the project,” she said.
